Doc's Extension

It's the off season and nothing is going on outside of Doc Rivers' contract extension, which may consume me. Jackie MacMullan ran an article on Saturday that got me going on it all over again. It included the following quote about Rivers:

"Rivers was so convinced he could get this young team to win, he dropped a request for a two-year extension and instead accepted a one-year deal with generous playoff incentives, according to team sources."
 
Does Doc have leverage? He's gone 102-144 over the last 3 regular seasons. And the crazy thing is I'm desperate for him to prove me wrong. I want the Celtics to win. I just don't share Danny Ainge's faith in Rivers.
